Obviously Mariah Carey saw all of the recent beach photos taken from very long telephoto lenses and decided she wanted some of that action. Of course, she doesn't want the world to see what she doesn't want them to see, so she carefully arranged this. A photographer who gets within five feet of her on a private beach as she just happens to be topless. There are no photos before or after, just this one. Oh, and how convenient that she has a magazine and a glass covering up her breasts.
The problem with stage photo ops is that you can't then as a celebrity complain about being swarmed by paparazzi. You can't pretend to have one and not have the other. It just doesn't work that way. Also, she thinks she is being very clever, but she better hope that photographer really did only take one picture or the world is going to see more than just Mimi being emancipated. We are going to see her two girls Gigi and Fifi. Oh, (see there it is again) you didn't know that Mariah named her breasts. Yep. I don't remember which is which. I know they are alphabetical, but I don't know if she started with the left or the right breast and if it is the right one facing us or her.
